Alan and Wendy Barnet, a quiet, upper-middle-class yuppie couple, are stuck in rut romantically. After some soul-searching, they decide to spice up their sex life by placing an ad in a swingers magazine. From among the many replies they receive, they arrange a date with Jack and Louise Bauer, a young couple who seem similar to the Barnets. After a very enoyable evening of spouse-swapping, the Barnets feel they've broken out of their rut and are ready to return to a life of monogamy. The Bauers, unfortunately, aren't quite so ready to let go. Written by

The movie started off with an interesting plot line. A married couple with children toys with the idea of becoming swingers. The movie follows the awkward steps the couple takes to finally go through with the idea.
The acting was good for a B movie, but the plot became too unreal. Once they meet another couple how do they stop the relationship? What if the new couple won't stop calling them? This and every other lame idea you can come up with begins to happen. If not for the well-shot scenes of Kristy kissing Brandy this movie would be a real clunker.
